Round 13 of the 18/19 Football NSW Premier League 2 competition against Sydney’s Phoenix Futsal was the second last round of the regular season and the final home round of matches for the season.
Earlier this season (Round 6) the club returned from the Phoenix home court with six wins and a draw from the nine competitive matches and an important four wins and a draw for the Club Championship (14 boys and up). Phoenix Futsal always provide challenging games across all age groups.
Development Squad Matches
Phoenix brought down the requisite 11 Boys and 11/12 girls teams, with earlier games featuring the Boomerangs 10 boys taking on the club’s 11 boys and the 9 boys against the 11 girls, on the larger, full-size court. The players ‘graduating’ to competitive age groups will need to get used to playing on the large court week in week out, so it was a good opportunity to for them.
Boomerangs 1 – 2 Phoenix Futsal (ht 0 – 0)
The 12 boys wanted desperately to redeem themselves after some fairly ordinary results over the past few weeks. And they played a solid, and improved match against fellow cellar-dwellers, Phoenix.
Unfortunately, after a strong defensive effort in the first half, they allowed the opposition to score two in the second period, and could only manage to bother the scorer once themselves. A solid effort by the boys, and will hopefully lead on to them securing a much-desired win for their last match of the season next weekend.
